Rapid Bus Sdn Bhd
Rapid Bus Sdn Bhd was formed on January 1, 2013 after a major restructuring exercise undertaken by its parent company, Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad in an effort by the Group to strengthen and streamline its operations. Inheriting the bus operations previously run by the Bus Division of Prasarana, its history would traced back to October 2003 when Prasarana bought over the buses and operations of Cityliner, Park May Bhd and Intrakota buses.
At present, Rapid Bus currently manages and operates RapidKL, RapidPenang and RapidKuantan bus networks under the leadership of its Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Zohari Sulaiman, who is also the Group Director of Prasarana Bus Division.
RapidKL operates in Klang Valley and Selangor, providing services for more than 1,000 housing estates covering 170 routes including routes to support the operations of its sister company Rapid Rail Sdn Bhd, which operates the LRT and monorail services in the Klang Valley.
As reflected by their names, RapidPenang operates in the island of Penang and Butterworth; covering 46 routes. RapidKuantan, which commenced operations on December 1, 2012, currently services a total of 12 routes around the state capital of Pahang. Most of the routes operated by Rapid Bus, however, are social routes; which are approved by the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD).
With its business nature more inclined to providing services for the ‘rakyat’, Rapid Bus receives support from the Government. Hence, the rationale in separating the bus and rail segments managed by Prasarana in order to provide a clearer picture of each financial standings.
